My name is Kerry Ruppert.  I have been at Gayhead for 25 years teaching Special Education in the ICT Classrooms.  I am duel certified in Elementary and Special Education.  Teaching has been the most rewarding career and a job that I love.  I have taught ICT 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th.  I have taken on the challenge of each grade level.  I have loved each one as they really are so different from each other.  My goal is to create a caring, warm, and nurturing environment. 
    My husband Pat and I have 3 children.  Christina is in College to become a nurse, Joseph is a Senior at Arlington HS, and Mikey is in the 6th grade at Union Vale Middle School.  My family loves to hike, go to the beach, and garden.  My family is very involved in Baseball and Travel Baseball.  We are NY Yankee Fans and divided with Patriots  - Giants for Football.  
    I have loved my career since the first day I started and still love it today.  There is not greater joy seeing a student thrive, grow, and learn.  I look forward to a wonderful year and "Welcome You to My Family".  
    Please reach out if you have any questions or would like to say "HI"  Remember, I am here for your children.  Please contact me with any questions, concerns, or notes.  My goal is to make school a fun, safe, &  educational environment.  (kerry.ruppert@wcsdny.org)
